*If you have a tunnel cloche, either glass or Perspex, lettuce can be planted into the ground a bit earlier as they will be protected from the harshest weather conditions.
Cutting the base off large clear plastic bottles works really well to use as individual covers for plants. This will protect them and keep them warm. On fine days you can unscrew the lids for ventilation.
* Slug and snail warning…. Pop some slug pellets down around young plants to avoid them being eaten, and check over every day. If you prefer a more organic approach, try putting a ring of sand/grit around your plants as they prefer not to travel across rough surfaces, but again check every day.
Lovely little plants very well packaged, all growing on well now.
Not rally good value for money
The plugs turned up in good time and each was a good size and in very good condition. All have been planted and are doing well. I certainly would re-order again and look at other products that Brookside Nursery supply.
Delivery and packaging perfect. Growing well and happy in the greenhouse.
The mixed salad leaf plant plugs, arrived in great condition and and all planted up in their various containers in the polytunnel awaiting the better weather to arrive and to be put outside . They all growing strong in the tunnel.
Plants arrived in good condition, have got off to a shaky start, seem to be picking up slowly.
Fantastic quality and were in really good condition when they arrived
I don't know how you guys manage to grow such perfect seedlings. I bought these guys 2 years ago and I had amazing salads all summer - these plugs give a wonderful selection of leaves. Last year I tried to grow everything from seed in a propagater - it was a disaster! This year I'm back to your lil seedlings and when they arrived they just looked so cute! They're well packaged and everything arrived perfectly - this hasn't been my experience with other companies but everything I've bought from Brookside has always arrived looking healthy and has gone on to grow well. I've given up on seeds now and will just buy from you guys every year ♥
